I have been making clocks for more than 30 years. I have a BFA in ceramics from the State University of New York at New Paltz and began my career working in clay. My first clocks were ceramic, but I have transitioned to other media over the years. My current work incorporates wood, copper, stainless steel, and other metals in designs combining basic geometric elements in interesting ways. Using these simple shapes and rich materials, I try to create pieces that are playful, dynamic, elegant, and modern—sculptural as well as functional. Each piece of art makes a unique home decor statement.
